Q: Don't family members make the best caregivers?
A: No. There's no question family members have the strongest feelings and the best intentions for loved ones in need of care. However, most families are unequipped to manage the responsibility of daily care. Hiring professionals does not mean you are shirking your responsibility to a loved one, it means you love them enough to do what's best for them.
Q: Won't your help cost me an arm and a leg?
A: No. Compared to facility based care like nursing homes or assisted living facilities, at-home care is tremendously cost-effective. Studies show that competent at-home care costs an average of 30% less than care provided outside of the home.
Q: How do I know we'll like the person that you send?
A: During our initial consultation, we'll take a careful survey of your likes, dislikes, special needs and personality preferences to find a caregiver that is compatible with you. We do everything in our power to make sure that you're happy with our company and your home care professional. If you are ever dissatisfied with your home care professional we will make a change as soon as possible.
Q: How much do your services cost?
A: Rates vary depending upon the type of services needed. You can be assured that once your needs are reviewed, our rate plan will be straightforward, easily understood and fair.
Q: Can I simply try your services to see if they fill our needs?
A: Absolutely. We know that given the chance, you'll see the difference our care makes for both loved ones in need of care and the family members charged with caring for them.
